WOO! As a huge Faith No More fan this news has totally made my day/week/month/year/decade. Faith No More’s Billy Gould has confirmed to Rolling Stone that the band is making a new album for release in 2015. In fact, he says they’re pretty far into the process already, and it’ll be released on the band’s own label, Reclamation Records, which will be distributed via vocalist Mike Patton’s Ipecac Recordings. The first single from the album will be a studio version of the song “Motherfucker” (which they debuted at London’s Hyde Park in July), which will be released on a seven-inch and limited to 5,000 copies as part of Record Store Day’s Black Friday (November 28).
Gould says: “What I can say is that I think through our experience as musicians over the years, I think what we’re doing reflects where we’ve gone since we made our last record as Faith No More. I think this kicks things up a notch. And I think there’s parts that are very powerful and there’s parts that have a lot of “space.” Everything we do, with our chemistry, the way we play; it’s always going to sound like us. It’s just what we do, that makes us feel good. Hopefully it doesn’t sound like a bunch of 50-year-old men… which we are!”
